ldyzx2's custom zx2 part2
this is a video of my zx2 july 9th 2008 after some detail done on her.
Timing Belt - VCT Delete - Oil Pump Front Seal Replacement Ford Zetec Engine.
This video shows you how to replace the timing belt on a Ford Escort ZX2. It also shows you how to delete the VCT gear for use of an adjustable gear and how to replace the front oil seal. Other Zetec engines are similar enough (from 1998 up, prior engines are similar but don't use VCT) that you can use this video to do the timing but removal of other parts around it (like the overflow bottle is in the way on some non-ZX2's) may not be the same and not all Zetec's have the VCT mechanism. I used to sell this video on Ebay and I've sold about 200 of them over the years and only once has anyone complained about it not being useful and he had a Focus. He apparently didn't read the listing where I said the video was shot on a ZX2. Anyway, I'm sure you'll find this video helpful and please don't forget to rate and share it. You should also note that the Zetec engine in the ZX2, Contour, Mystique, Cougar, Escape, and Focus (not SVT) are non-interference despite what a mechanic or even a Ford dealer might tell you. I even show in the video why it is this way and prove it by cranking my engine over with the belt off and the cams locked.
